ESA's Swarm Says the Earth's Magnetic Field is Weakening - How Weakening Magnetic Field results in hotter Summer Days and Hurricanes in Christmas 2014

“These initial results demonstrate the excellent performance of Swarm. With unprecedented resolution, the data also exhibit Swarm's capability to map fine-scale features of the magnetic field”

Swarm Mission Manager Dr Rune Floberghagen commenting at the Third Swarm Science Meeting, held in Copenhagen on Thursday June 19th 2014

Bad news dear Readers!

We might have to abort the launch of CVM TV Meteorologist Patria Kay-Aarons into Outer Space as I'd explained was possible in my blog article entitledPatria Kay-Aarons in Space – How the CVM TV Weather Girl can become Jamaica’s first Astronaut”.

That's because the Earth's Magnetic Field is slowly collapsing, according to the ESA Swarm Satellite Constellation that's designed to measure the Earth's Magnetic Field as stated in the article “Earth's Electromagnetic Field Is Weakening”, published June 21, 2014 by Stephen Luntz, I Fucking Love Science and “Swarm Reveals Earth's Chancing Magnetism”, published 19 July 2014, European Space Agency.

The Swarm Satellites are controlled by ESA teams at the European Space Operation Centre in Darmstadt, Germany. The lower pair will fly in formation side by side, about 150 km (10 seconds) apart at the equator and at an initial altitude of 460 km, while the upper satellite will rise to a higher orbit, at 530 km.

The results from the three Swarm Satellites as described in “ESA's Swarm Trio on its way to Watch over our planet's Magnetic shield”, published November 22 2013, European Space Agency were presented at the Third Swarm Science Meeting, held in Copenhagen on Thursday June 19th 2014. Good to note that High Altitude Geosynchronous Orbit are desirable, as they cover large swathes of the Earth and it would only take three such Satellites equally spaced across the Equator at 120 Degrees to cover the entire Earth.

The three Swarm Satellites were launched in November 2013 and have been collecting data for the past six (6) months. It is this constellation of satellites that have mapped the Earth's Magnetic Field in unprecedented detail for the first time. The Earth's Magnetic field is created by the Iron Core in the middle of the Earth and has an average strength of 40,000nT or 0.4 Gauss and has been studied by many scientists over the course of the century as explained in The Oxford University’s publication The Secular Change in the Earth’s Magnetic Field.

Earth’s Magnetic Field – The Sky is Falling but the Poles are staying Put

There's no evidence of any coming Polar shift, despite the ranting of journalists at the Daily Mail UK as stated in “Forget global warming, worry about the MAGNETOSPHERE: Earth's magnetic field is collapsing and it could affect the climate and wipe out power grids”, published 17:25 GMT, 31 January 2014 By ELLIE ZOLFAGHARIFARD, Daily Mail UK.

However, the Magnetic North and South Pole of the Earth aren't geographically fixed in one location; they wander about the Earth at rates of around 15 km/year as noted in “North Magnetic Pole Moving Due to Core Flux”, published DECEMBER 24, 2009 by Richard A. Lovett, National Geographic News. As such, Geographic North and Magnetic North are completely dissimilar!

According to the Kyoto University’s website tracking Magnetic North, Geomagnetic and Magnetic Poles, the North Pole is moving towards Siberia from its location in Canada and according to the Swarm Science Team, it's weakening all around the world.

At the Poles, the Magnetic Field is weakest, so much so that Charged particles from the Sun's Solar Wind and Cosmic Rays interact with this increasingly narrowing Magnetic Field, resulting in what's known as the Aurora Borealis. If, however, the Earth's Magnetic field were to totally collapse, that would allow these charged particles to bombard us directly both day and night. The sky would look any different, but going outside would be lethal, as we'd be exposed to deadly Solar Radiation.

How weakening Magnetic Field will result in hotter Summer Days and Hurricanes in Christmas 2014

Third Swarm Science Meeting wasn’t specifically clear as to what parts of the Earth the Magnetic Field was weakest during its six (6) months of observation, albeit the map below suggests that the Equatorial Regions are basically being baked alive as we speak.

But if it's happening around the Equatorial Regions, then island Nations such as Jamaica would have begun to notice this via increased Temperatures.

They'd also experience increased drought, as such intense heat would mean that the Clouds that form precipitation would produce rain, as the clouds, which are basically suspended droplets of moisture, wouldn't develope the critical mass to manifest droplets of water to produce rainfall.

Such a doomsday scenario would result in humans literally being cooked alive in a manner akin to food in a microwave, as the Radiation from space would pour down from the sky unchecked over land. If it occurred over sea, the Oceans would become very hot and slowly boil off to produce a huge amount of precipitation.

Eventually, the very same heat that preventing clouds from becoming massive enough to produce rain would eventually start to be fed on a steady diet of superhot moisture. Throw in the turning effect of the Earth's rotation and the cooling as it rises to higher stratospheric altitudes, this super-hot rising column on moisture would condense into clouds.

Those clouds would become swirling masses, enough to overcome the El Nino effect that usually blows off the tops of organized systems as explained in my blog article entitled2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season looking Fairly Quiet - How Hurricanes are formed as Hurricane making Landfall equals Disaster”.

Before you know it, you'd have Tropical Depressions then Tropical Storms finally blossoming into hurricanes being spawned over the Seas towards the end of Summer. This would begin to manifest around the September to December 2014. As the Days get shorter and the nights get longer, the upper atmosphere would get cooler. That means more of these Tropical Depressions, Tropical Storms then finally hurricanes would be forming overnight.

Earth’s Weakening Magnetic Field – Be Prepared for Winter Hurricanes

So what's shaping up to happen by December 2014. That’s a LOT more interesting than just the Earth’s Magnetic field disappearing altogether or even a Polar Shift as per the speculation in “Earth's Magnetic Field Is Fading”, published September 9, 2004 by John Roach, National Geographic News.

Depending on your outlook on life and belief system, it may either mark increasing Weather activity or your life being turned upside down, Fresh Prince of Belair Style, by a potential Polar Shift.

Since a Polar Shift as described “2012: Magnetic Pole Reversal Happens All The (Geologic) Time”, published 11.30.11, NASA and Are the Earth’s poles about to flip?”, published November 23, 2013 at 4:00 PM EDT BY MEGAN THOMPSON, PBS, scientifically speaking, isn't what's happening here, just merely a weakening of the Earth's Magnetic Field.

The first effects that I'd expect to see are in the form of Weather anomalies; hotter Summer due to the longer Days and Hurricanes in Christmas 2014!
